China warned students and academics yesterday about risks involved in studying in the United States, pointing to limits on the duration of visas and visa refusals, amid a bitter trade war and other tensions between the two countries.

Relations between the countries have nosedived because of the trade conflict, US sanctions on Chinese tech firm Huawei Technologies, and tension over the disputed South China Sea and US support for Chinese-claimed Taiwan.

The Chinese Ministry of Education said some students seeking to study in the US had encountered problems with the duration of their visas.
